Started by lazzykat on 02/09/2013 9:51pm

I applyed for ssdi in sept of 2012 and was approved in Jan 2013. Never talked to my dr. I am going to pain drs. I did have a layer. It was one that if you dont win you dont pay. Now How do I pay then bacause I dont think I will be getting back pay. Can anyone help?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Congratulations!!! I am so happy to hear that you got approved so fast! In answer to your question, I would assume that your lawyer had you sign some type of contract with him/her which would or should explan ho they are to get paid. Let me ask you this: What was your date of disability? Once that is determined add 5 months for a waiing period, then you start getting paid from the 6th month moving forward. It's my understanding that your lawyer can only take 25% of your back pay, up to 6,500.
